Neural unit recording was performed during CT-guided stereotactic thalamotomy in 2 patients referred for severe cerebellar ataxia and dysmetric movements. Periodic CT scanning was performed during the recording in order to verify probe location and trajectory. Our experience with electrophysiological recordings at the CT gantry site demonstrates the feasibility of acquiring satisfactory neural unit recordings in spite of the high-voltage environment.
